Your invitations are sent, table placements are done, catering is sorted and your wedding dress fits like a dream. Your wedding is pretty much organised, right? Well nearly - when planning your reception it is important to pay attention to the small details, such as what type of wedding chair style you’ll have, in order to create the right atmosphere on your big day.
